Egg Facial Mask

Ingredients you need:

1 egg
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 tbs honey


First, beat the egg in a small bowl. Next add the ½ cup of coconut oil and 1 tbs of honey. Keep beating this mixture until the mix has the consistency of mayonnaise. You can then take a spoon and put the mix into an old toilet paper roll with it sitting upright in a small bowl. Take the bowl and put it in the freezer overnight. To use, just peel away the cardboard from the old toilet paper roll. Now you just roll and smooth the frozen stick over your face. Leave it on your face 5-10 minutes then wash it off with warm water. You can keep the stick covered with plastic wrap and keep frozen between uses.

How Often Should You Use a Facial Masque in Spring?

This is a great question. First off we have to remember that none of us have the same skin type. One of you may have oily skin, and another of you may have dry problematic skin. With that being said, the two of you shouldn’t be treating your skin the same.

Facial masques come in many forms and perform different tasks. One thing that works for all types of skin is exfoliating twice per week. By getting rid of that dead layer of skin, you help to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy. Exfoliation also helps to pull the toxins out of your skin that cause problems. Something else to keep in mind for your exfoliation routine is to make sure you skip at least one day between treatments.

Its Sandal Time! Are Your Piggies Ready?

It has been a cold winter and we are already talking about wearing Sandals? Well, spring is upon us once again and we want to help you get those piggies ready for putting on those sandals.

If you take the following steps you will have your feet ready for spring.

First you should soak your feet in warm water for about 20-30 minutes. Using Epsom salts in the mixture will help relieve aching muscles and loosen dead skin. Once you have completed the soaking process, you should use a pumice stone to help remove the old skin and then rinse your feet off.

After you have dried off your feet, trim and file your toenails. To avoid ingrown toenails you should trim and file them into a square shape. Using a cuticle stick, push the toe cuticles back. Never cut the cuticles with scissors because they help keep bacteria from entering your skin.

Once you have completed attending to your toenails, use alcohol to clean them off. Then you can polish them with a clear basecoat. Let them dry and then you can apply regular nail polish, any color you desire, on your toes. Added suggestion for you here, once the nail polish has dried use a top clear coat. This will help keep your toes looking beautiful for a longer period of time.

Using your favorite lotion will help you have pretty bare feet. Slather the lotion all over and then cover your feet with gallon size freezer bags. Take a hair band or rubber band to secure the bags on your feet. Keep the bags on your feet for 15-30 minutes. When you remove the bags, you will have extra smooth and soft piggies.

In the winter months our feet can really suffer. Sometimes a much more intensive treatment is needed. Our suggestion is an intense exfoliation. You should start at night before you go to bed by rubbing vegetable oil onto your feet. Cover your feet with socks. When you get up in the morning, shower as normal then you will need to file off the rough skin. Next you will need to rinse your feet, then dry, and finally add a thick heavy lotion. Within a few days of this daily treatment, your piggies will be ready for Sandals.
